FINDING MEANING: CSNBAYAREA.com’s Ray Ratto wrote the question becomes whether the blue-ribbon committee’s findings in these two meetings have “anything to do with anything” (CSNBAYAREA.com, 8/5). CSNBAYAREA.com noted the committee’s meeting Wednesday “highlights attempts to counter” Wolff’s statements that there are “no viable options for a new stadium in Oakland.” If Oakland can “present a practical proposal for a waterfront ballpark, it could force Wolff to accept a plan to keep the A’s in Oakland or face pressure to sell the team to someone willing to do so” (CSNBAYAREA.com, 8/5).
